Sterling Silver Torque -Choker

Sterling Silver Torque -Choker

A torc, also spelled torq or torque, is a large, usually rigid, neck ring typically made from strands of metal twisted together. The great majority are open-ended at the front, although many seem designed for near-permanent wear, and would have been difficult to remove, despite the softness of gold. Smaller torcs worn around the wrist are called bracelets instead. Torcs are found in the Scythian, Illyrian[1] Thracian, Celtic, and other cultures of the European Iron Age, from around the 8th century BC to the 3rd century AD. The Celtic torc disappears in the Migration Period, but during the Viking Age, torc-style metal necklaces came back into fashion
